Subject: As Fairy Tales Go-Not Bad
Not bad for early cinema, and as the previous reviewer mentioned a good method to introduce a child to silent film. The mpg version seems to be intact. Well, at least the ending was there.

Subject: Pleasant Silent Film
I've seen this on DVD and watched a bit of this uploaded version. IMHO the music doesn't really fit although I'm sure most people on IA have some Classical music that might fit better. Either way it's great to see this film uploaded, since it's a entertaining silent kiddie film, and a good way to introduce kids to silents. Only about half the film survives but the story-line is understandable.
